Vemar VSR carbon-fiber helmet

Ahhhh ! What a nice looking helmet. And light too. I had to look twice to make sure I had it in my hand when I picked it up. Thing is so light it just about floats. I just tried on a large about an hour ago. Damn do I want that thing. I just dont want to pay $900- for the thing. Sure would go nice with my Black and titanium 954 though. Does anyone here from the site happen to have one?

Damn, your name is just deeply disturbing for some reason.

Nice lids, I wish I had that kind of dough in my budget for one.

And then there's this asshole...

Well don't bother bringing the bling to Grattan, it won't pass inspection. No Snell, no sell.

Re: Vemar VSR carbon-fiber helmet

From the Grattan FAQ:

Q. What type of safety gear is required?

A. Full Face Snell approved helmet no older than 5 years with good shield.

Suomy is B.S.I. 6658 compliant. Are the rules at Grattan such that it's Snell or no ride?

The rules for Fireblades.org [email protected] are such that if the country you are from uses BSI or ECE as their standard for competition helmets, then they are allowed (as long as they are in excellent condition and less than 5 years old and carry the current certification). If you are from the US, then a Snell 2000 or later certification is required (along with the same age and condition requirements).

Re: Vemar VSR carbon-fiber helmet

What nobody likes my screen name? It does'nt matter anyway. Trust me it has NO meaning on my part. Yeah, no Snell approval. One of the reasons why I dont like spending that kind of money.

Do you really think it looks like crap? I actually thought it was half decent. Its obviously not flat which means there is a seem in it. And it just so happens to run down the center of the helmet...... as if you split it in half. Although the seem is noticeable its very well done.

I don't understand the logic, but anyway I'm thread jacking.
